When Brent and Ginny saw each other for the first time on the day they became husband & wife, their smiles said it all! These two didn't stop smiling all day - they were just so excited to be getting married. Brent and Ginny's wedding day was relaxed, fun and focused on celebrating not only their love for each other but their love for their families too.
Towards the end of the day one of the wedding guests asked me if Matt and I were friends of Brent and Ginny's or whether we were just hired photographers. She commented on how it seemed like we knew them so well. I answered by saying; In the beginning we were just their chosen photographers. But we've come to know Brent and Ginny well over their wedding journey. It's a huge privilege to be a part of such a big day in a couple's life & getting to know our couples means we can photograph them honestly and naturally. So it's pretty darn special when wedding guests can see the rapport we have built with our couples!
While Ginny and the girls were trying to hold back the tears of joy as they got ready at home, the guys had a chilled out morning getting ready in Queenstown.
Brent and Ginny chose to see each other before the ceremony, doing a first look on Speargrass Flat Road. Their first look was so special, emotional and beautiful.
Just gorgeous Gin!
Ginny's parents saw her for the first time in her wedding dress just before they walked her down the aisle, and there wasn't a person in the room with dry eyes!
Brent and Ginny's late afternoon ceremony was filled with laughter and love.
The best part about doing a first look?! Getting to go straight into partying with your guests after the ceremony! And Gibbston Valley Winery has the perfect setup to do just that. Everyone enjoyed epic cheese boards paired with the Central Otago wine and some awesome music from Neil Chilton.
The reception room looked amazing with beautiful detailing.
There was plenty of laughter during speeches and a few more tears!
The obligatory photo with our awesome couple!!!
Brent and Ginny - words can't describe how amazing your wedding day was. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of it. We've had so much fun being your photographers! It's been a privilege and we've gained fabulous friends in the process!
Congratulations once again team! We wish you every happiness in your marriage.xx
